Diamondback Level Link

It’s no secret that we’re fans of Diamondback, especially after rolling one of their fat bikes all winter. This past week they launched their new full-suspension mountain technology, Level Link. Utilizing a unique geometry that stacks the suspension pivot points above the bottom bracket, it isolates pedal movement so you’ll be more efficient on the uphill. Of course that means more time ripping downhill singletrack. Look for the Catch and Release models to hit the market soon.

Howler Brothers Spring 2016 Collection

How many times have you slammed your office door and planned a tropical getaway, only to push it off to “next year”? Whether you’re finally getting packed for that Costa Rican surf trip, or just heading to the closet lake to sling a few flies after work, the new spring line up from Howler Brothers is your ticket off the beaten path. If we had to pick just one piece, it would definitely be the Waterman’s Work Short. From cleaning fish dockside to firing up the grill on your tailgate, these are the perfect summer shorts.

Mark Healey: Free To Move

Pro Surfer Mark Healey doesn’t work out like the rest of us. A rough day in the gym for him might include getting absolutely hammered by huge waves, or free diving to tag hammerhead sharks. However, when all the hard work pays off, sending a monster sixty foot wave at world famous surf break, Jaws, it’s easy to see why he is so dedicated.

Barton Perreira Factory

For twenty-five years the team at Bill Barton has built relationships with high quality Japanese eyeglass frame makers. In 2007, when he and Patty Perreira launched Barton Perreira, that eye for quality and style naturally progressed to near perfection. If you’re not entirely convinced, this behind the scenes look at their production process demonstrates their commitment to pursuing excellence.
